“In the wonderful hills of Barolo wine, where the landscape begins to take on a different, more animated guise, there is a family that has always been associated with wine: the BROVIAs. The Winery had been set up as far back as 1863 and is settled in Castiglione Falletto. Paying always attention to the importance of the “terroir”, with time and an uncompromising attitude to the selection of the finest vineyards in Langa, the family has been able to acquire great vineyards in the Barolo growing area: Rocche, Villero and Garblèt Sue’ in Castiglione Falletto and Ca’Mia and Brea in Serralunga d’Alba. Thus, the philosophy of the Winery is to propose great personality Barolos (as with the other wines produced), all made in the same way, but with very specific and clean characteristics, always different among them; Barolos that faithfully reflect the richness of our great Langa vineyards. “ Read less

Mid aged vines and old vines, 70% from Brea in Serralunga Superb aromatics show hints of asphalt and dried beef with nuanced black pepper and sweet rose petal notes accentuating core of sweetness to be found here. Cool, compact and a bit medicinal in the mouth, with a bed of packed tannins supporting subtle shadings of dried fruit, burnished fruit, dried orange peel and earthy flavors. elegant if tannic and nuanced, this is a little old school powerhouse with hints of mint and herbs on the long if tough and savory finish. This will reward cellaring. 91pts

Awesome nose, full of balsamic notes with a green pine edge to the small red fruits, with an assertive camphor top note. This shows fine intensity, focus and balance on the nose Round and powerful on entry this shows slightly pruny fruit , in a good way over a base of rich cooked cherry character that is laced with minerality through the moderately long finish. Yes this is quite ripe in flavor but it does manage to retain excellent freshness and is really a  gorgeous wine, 92pts

Brovia ‘Ca Mia’ -- Nettles, cherry in alcohol, soil, a touch balsamic, a bit powdery dusty, cement mineral tones. Fresh, roses in the mouth, red fruit, astringent red fruit, gentle, some elegance in the mouth, smaller scaled, lovely rosehip and red fruit inner mouth perfumes. Savory red raspberry and old wood on the backend, finish is tight, short and clean.

A special bottling to commemorate the 150th anniversary of Brovia. A historical blend of Rocche and Villero, one that was very popular before Crus took over, that spent 5 years in botte. Bottled exclusively in magnum. Lovely sandalwood, red licorice, and dried peach aromas greet the nose followed by light grey/black spice tones, a touch of ash and dry white clay. This is silken on entry, with burnished cherry fruit that is a touch lean and mineral before gaining nice black cherry pit fruit framed by licorice notes on the mid-palate. This has a sweetness to the tannins, and lovely wild cherry fruit on the backend that leads to a long savory finish, showing rosehip and mint nuances, along with a bit of alcohol on the finale. This is old school to the max, their Monfortino to their Giacosa-esque regular crus. 93pts

Intense notes of walnut shells, violets, roast meat, herb stem, sand, a touch of menthol, spicy and every so stewy wild berry fruit 3 Superb elegance in the mouth with a sweet entry and a steely midpalate showing superb balance and integration 3+ Fresh and cool flavors of mineral, licorice and wild berry are crisp and virtually ready to drink, delicious 2+ The medium length finish is tight and taut with just a hint of austerity and noteworthy transparency to the earth and tobacco tones 2+ 92pts

Classic Brovia with a restrained subtlety and great focus on the decidedly dark, tarry, anise tinged fruits. Very civilized and finely focused with good balance and drinking well though with 2 decades positive development ahead.

Fine, spiced cherry nose. Palate is tannic, full of deep red fruits, warm medicinal flavors, cedar box, and loads of spice. Good, refreshing acidity finishes with tar and clove.

The 2008 Barolo is stupendous. Dark red cherries, flowers, violets and mint are some of the many nuances that emerge from this firm, classically built wine. This is a terrific showing from the straight Barolo. The 2008 possesses dazzling richness. Ha... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Nebbiolo wine from Piedmont in Italy. 2008 F Ili Brovia Barolo 750ml

The 2008 Barolo is pure class. Tobacco incense crushed rocks and dried flowers fuse into a juicy expressive core of dark fruit. The 2008 stands out for its balance and overall sense of harmony. Brovia s straight Barolo is at once highly nuanced - which makes it approachable young - yet also structured and powerful especially on the finish. Over the last few years this has been one of the very best entry-level Baroli. The Barolo is essentially a blend of all of Brovia s single-vineyard wines and is aged in Slavonian cask. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2020. Antonio Galloni.
